Progressive Rock/Pop at its finest. The album can be a lot to take as there are a lot to take in soundvice, but it really just gets better and better. I actually love the album more today than I did when it first came out. If I could have a say I think they should have cut two songs in the end of the album, as it is a quite long one with a lot of information, so by cutting two songs (Louisa and Small Ambulance) it would have been perfect.

And The Glass Handed Kites is a record that works better as a complete album than as a collection of songs. This was recognized by the band, as they created seamless transitions from track to track. The transitions create a structure wherein the songs are movements within the larger framework of the album. This framework is in my mind broken into smaller sections composed of several songs, for example "Fox Cub" through "The Zookeepers's Boy" makes up one section, since they flow together even more naturally than other songs do. The album's sound is pretty ambitious, while still being pop music. This makes the album very listenable, while still having enough going on to reward multiple listens. One of the best modern pop rock albums, it's definitely worth your time.
